Real fun route that traverses around all of the Cedro and Otero Canyon trail systems. There are many different customizations to this route, such as taking different climbs or descents, and or leaving/adding in some other stuff. The way I did it is a real fun route, and gets Middle and Cedro Singletrack in it. These are some of my favorite trails in the whole trail system. If you are going to ride this CCW, go up Birdhouse Ridge. Birdhouse is a really fun and techy climb that, in my opinion, is a lot better than the Tunnel Canyon climb.
